  1. I have been using Tretinoin microsphere gel 0.1% and Minocycline 100mg (twice a day) for a couple of months now and I was on the acneeinstein.com website and the suggestion of taking zinc/Vitamin D3 pills was suggested. I wanted to ask and see if it was ok that I take these pills along with the medications that have been prescribed to me? thanks in advance.
  2. http://bodyecology.com/articles/4-steps-to-say-goodbye-to-acne This should be a decent article for anyone suffering from acne and food intolerances, gut problems. Started making milk kefir recently myself. Im on a GAPS-like diet, starting to eat more sweet potato lately though. Drink lots of bone broth as well as eating and drinking fermented foods, this has helped my clear their skin. Any questions I'd be happy to try answer!
  3. I've found from going to my Integrative Physician that after years of birth control pills and antibiotics to treat my acne that I have gut dysbiosis or commonly known as "Leaky Gut" which is causing undigested food particles, viruses, fungi, and bacteria to leak into my bloodstream. This taxes my liver because all my bacteria, fungi, and viruses that are suppose to stay in my intestinal tract are heading to my liver and my system is overloaded. I am now 47 years old and I have been dealing wit
  4. It's been a while since I was on this! Anyways I'm currently healing heal my leaky gut/ digestive issues/ acne and was wondering if there is anything else I should start doing or incorporating into my diet. My diet looks like this; 2 cups of bone broth per day 2 probiotic capsules (only started a few weeks ago) 1 tablespoon of pysillium husks each morning hlf teasp of triphala and neem after meals 1-2 allicin tablets per day Gluten free sourdough bread Gluten free cereals (ie- Buckwhea
  5. Read this PLEASE. It's been a long road, and I feel like I can answer a lot of questions. I'll have a concise conclusion at the end, so don't worry about remembering everything I say that you need to do. The immune system is designed to keep things like viruses and foreign bacteria out of our system. Bacteria's getting in our system, so there's clearly a problem. To first answer the fiends that insist acne is from hormones and oil glands and which can't be changed, they can. You can balance horm
  6. I'm testing something new and while too soon to say for certain, it does seem to help. Doing nothing.. specifically, avoiding soil based bacteria by cooking or thoroughly washing all vegetables, and also not taking probiotics. Here's my long journey... Nearly 40 y/o m, I've been able to clear my skin completely via diet changes stemming from IgE skin prick testing. (The IgG blood testing had tons of false results) All of the most common food allergens and about 10 others were +. So no diary
  7. Hi All, My names Ash, Well for the last 10 years or so I have suffered from Acne. In my opinion it totally ruined my teenage years. I am 26 now and committed to find a permanent solution to Acne. Like everyone else, I have tried.... EVERYTHING including the infamous "Accutane" aka "Roaccutane". All of these things only ever fixed the issue temporarily, my acne always returned. After extensive research online, I came across a research that indicated allot skin conditions and mental condi
  8. Has anyone found that supplimenting antibiotics with probiotics could help the acne stay away after stopping the use of antibiotics? Just curious if there is ANYONE out there who recieved long term and or perminant clear skin from using antibiotics for their acne and maybe some advice on how to break the cycle of acne returning shortly after antibiotics are done. Im taking minocycline now and I refuse to be on it for more than a month, unless my derm can seriously convince me otherwise, I do n
  9. Hi everyone, I am slowly starting to see the effect of eating nutrient dense food and sleeping on time waking up early. I am in no way clear. But I get 1-2 spots compared to a warzone my face was about 2 months ago. ven few days of being absolutely clear.. I will be having a surgery tomorrow and the doctors have told me they would have to give me an antibiotic for a week when I am healing to prevent infections. I feel my acne issues started when my gut got weak while on a dose of ant
  10. The acne regimen is not an effective method in permanently stopping acne. It just masks the symptoms. Here are the causes of acne, and how to permanently stop acne. Hormones - Most of acne is caused by hormones. Certain hormones signal the skin to produce more oil and sebum, which causes acne. The ONLY way to stop acne permanently is to shrink these things permanently. One fact that isn't as known as it should be is that DAIRY PRODUCTS CONTAIN TONS OF HORMONES. You should stay far away from
  11. Literally just started my 40 mg 2x a day accutane course, but I have been on antibiotics for acne for about 2 years. The antibiotics would always work for a bit, then wear off until I got a new kind prescribed, but I have decided to go on accutane for a permanent clear. I hate the idea of taking antibiotics long term, so I feel like this was the best choice to do. But being on antibiotics for 2 years, I definitely lost some of the "good" bacteria (gut flora) so I was wondering if taking prob
  12. Hello Everyone! I have a question that I am trying to figure out and want to know if anyone has had a similar experience. I recently upgraded my probiotic to one that is 2 billion with 5 strains, has to be refrigerated and is from a health food store. Almost overnight I woke up with TONS of tiny pimples. 3 days on the probiotic and they are covering what was my clear face. I have stopped taking the probiotics now. Has anyone else ever broken out from probiotics? I have three semi-educat
  13. Hello everyone, I test stuff for a living and I decided to take my acne problem into my own hands. Below is a correspondence I'm having with a dermatologist. I'm not sure if anyone is interested but I'll use this forum to let you know about progress with this experiment. If I proceed, I'll be posting photos and graphs. If you have questions please feel free to ask. Thanks. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  14. I haven't updated with pictures in a while, so I wanted to document my progress on this log to motivate me to stay on track with my diet. I am still following the candida diet as best as I can. 10 days ago, I got another high-frequency facial treatment, which really helped calm down redness and irritation. My period messed my face up a bit, but now I'm back on track. My only concern is that I had been spotting for a week (a few brown spots of blood) before my period - has anyone experienced this

    Day 1 Curology

    So no matter how much I want things to clear my skin, that I used to be able to use on my skin, they don't work. I prayed and just sucked up my fear of dermatologists. I got an online dermatologist on curology because it's a lot less hassle! I didn't want to have to call my doc to get a referral for dermatology, call the dermatologist, go see the derm, and then go get a prescription. I have insurance but it still costs money and driving. I also don't like taking on the phone for some reason.
  16. New blog so I can post photos! Duh! For your reference... this is me: Meet Natalie! Today at work...I'm dead. I'm so sleep deprived I have no idea how I'm still functioning. I ate and I feel sick. It's about 4pm. I'm ready to go home and sleep. I had to start this blog because my other one ran out of MB??? I don't even know. Ain't nothin' changed...Drinkin' tea...Workin'...YOU already KNOOOOW. photos with my hair down are last night and today with my hair up at work looking like death hah
  17. I've started upping my intake of coconut oil (ie. eating it off the spoon). I'm not complaining because it tastes scrumptious to me! I heard that it's good for getting rid of bad bacteria and yeast in your body. I've read mixed opinions online as to whether it only kills bad things or both good and bad, so I'm taking a multi-strain probiotic just in case. The main reason I'm dong this is to see if my skin would benefit from helping my digestive system after I was bad with antibiotics. I hav
  18. To keep it simple, if you are an adult ( > 20) and still have acne, you have a leaky gut. You must be thinking all the time, why those guys eat all the shit (oily, spicy, gluten, dairy, sugar) and still have flawless skin but I feel like being cursed for something I did in my past life. Not your fault my friend. The only fault is where the food is being absorbed. To make it more clear, where the toxins (and undigested) food is being absorbed i.e. Your GUT. "All disease begins in gut" ~ Hippo
  19. Hey all! I don't know about you guys, but I had a lovely three day weekend, for not only did Martin Luther King become the driving force behind the civil rights movement--He also, very deservedly, had a day set aside in his honor, on which my college campus was completely closed. I know, two weeks into the semester isn't a very long time, but trust me, I needed the break. Now....*drumroll* the skin update!! Now last week was the week before mother nature decided to beat up my uterus, so I wa
  20. I'm starting to wean off antibiotics! From what I've researched, antibiotics kill both good (gut flora) and bad (candida) bacteria. While weaning off antibiotics, would it be wise to approach it with an (anti)candida diet (to not allow bad bacteria to flourish, and keep them at bay)? Logically, I assume this would inhibit the bad bacteria's growth, and along with probiotics, keep their levels low and eventually out-numbered! So, SOUND GOOD?
  21. Hi everyone, My name is Vince and I am 20 years old. I have had pretty bad acne on my face since I was 14 years old. I just joined the forum today to make this post because i believe it could help many people on here struggling with acne. I finally found out what worked for me and I always told myself that when I get rid of my acne I will share my story with others to possibly help them. I have had between moderate and severe acne and here is a list of things that I have tried that were non-s
  22. Hi everyone, I am an 18 year old female who stated to develop acne at age 12. I have been taking the oral antibiotic doxycycline for about 4 or 5 years. Recently I have been reading about the importance of gut flora and gut health. This research is what led me to realize antibiotic use, especially in the long term, can be very harmful to your gut. I suspect myself of having a candida overgrowth due to longterm antibiotic use, tinea capitis (a fungal infection of the scalp), and fungal acne. My t
  23. I've just started a course of probiotics and vitamin supplements for my acne. Alongside this, I have dramatically changed my diet, cutting out dairy, wheat and sugar, with the advice and guidance of a nutritionist. However, it seems that may acne has become worse breaking out in white pimples over my face and a couple cystic spots. Is the theory that my skin could be 'detoxing' and readjusting to this new diet valid? Will it get worse before it gets better?
  24. I am thinking of going on probiotic suppliments but I am on a dairy free diet. Lactobassillus casei is in my probiotics as well as a bunch of other stuff. Is that stuff safe for dairy free diets?
  25. Something interesting I wanted to share. My doctor (not my dermatologist) suggested I take probiotics after antibiotic use. Over this past summer I took Accuflora and broke out on my face pretty badly. I didn't attribute the breakout to the probiotic at first, but I stopped taking it after about a month, and the acne subsided. I assumed I had broken out because the product contained traces of dairy. So this past month, I tried another probiotic (this time vegan) that had very high ratings on Ama
